Gardevoir or Gallade

Gardevoir or Gallade is an attempt at doing a comparative analysis of both these Pokemon to give a better understanding to the reader as to what these Pokemon are and how the players can use them. This article will try to answer the question of which Pokemon a player should choose – Gardeevoir or Gallade?

When choosing between either Gardevoir or Gallade there are indeed several reasons which make one be the obvious candidate. However, it all boils down to how the player is planning on using them as well as what type of the player wants to have. This article will attempt at giving the reader a better insight into this and a better understanding of whether Gardevoir or Gallade is better.

A Brief Overview

Both the Gardevoir, as well as the Gallade, are Psychic Pokemon that have some of the most demanding evolution branches. Both these Pokemon evolve from the Ralts Pokemon and have two unique and different evolutionary paths. When a Pokemon has two different evolutionary paths it is only natural to do a comparison on both and hence the question – Gardevoir or Gallade.

But before we go forward with the question of whether to choose Gardevoir or Gallade, one needs to ask the question of whether it is possible to evolve the Pokemon the player has into Gardevoir or Gallade.

Can You Evolve Your Pokemon into Gardevoir or Gallade?

Well, the answer is yes it is possible to evolve your Pokemon into Gardevoir or Gallade, obviously, all you need to do is have a Ralts Pokemon but the answer is not that simple.

It all comes down to the gender of the Pokemon. If the Ralts in your hand is a Girl then the player would have no choice but to evolve the Pokemon into a Gardevoir. If it is a boy, however, there is an option for the player to either evolve it into a Gardevoir or Gallade. Once again, the answer is not that simple.

If a player wishes to evolve his or her Ralts into a Gallade a player will need to have a Sinnoh Stone.

Gardevoir or Gallade – Which is Better?

Gardevoir vs Gallade

When it comes down to choosing between Gardevoir or Gallade it is a tough call. Both the Pokemon, whether it be Gardevoir or Gallade are very similar. They have the same base stats such as Maximum HP and CP threshold etcetera. So, when it gets to choosing between Gardevoir or Gallade it comes down to the Versatility and Utility on the battlefield. When these criteria are taken into consideration the better of the two options would be Gardevoir.

Gallade, since it is a fighting type, offers a wider range of opponents. However, it has limited fighting-type moves and does not have the best move the fighting-type Pokemon has to offer – The Dynamic Punch. Due to this reason, Gallade is outclassed by other Pokemon belonging to Superior Fighting Types and Fighting Type Hybrid like Lucario or Machamp.

Since Gardevoir is a Fairy-Type Pokemon they are undisputed. When the Pokemon makes use of the Dazzling Gleam charged move it becomes one of the best, if not the best Pokemon in Pokemon GO.
